Pune-based filmmaker wins 3 awards at National Science Film festival For his brilliant cinematic rendition of the abstruse (अति गूढ़) work of a mathematical genius, city-based Nandan Kudhyadi has won three awards for the fourth docu-drama on Srinivasa Ramanujan: The Mathematician (गणितज्ञ) and His Legacy (विरासत) at the seventh National Science Film festival. Vigyan prasar, an autonomous organisation under the Department of Science and Technology and National Council of Science Museums(संग्रहालय) , organised the festival in Kolkata between February 14 and 18.
The three awards include the Bronze Beaver Award, Technical Excellence Award: Direction for creating an absorbing narrative that moves with ease between documentary interviews, vivid reenactments and explanatory graphics and Technical Excellence Award: Research for its exploration into contemporary applications of Ramanujan’s abstract theories, and for his meticulous attention to its biographical detail. Earlier last December, the same film had won the Jury Award at the India International Science Festival 2016.
